Hey Beth. Thanks for this post. As an Extension educator targeting forest landowners, I often find myself wrestling with this exact issue: the big change web 2.0 tools allow is not the ability to converse, it's the ability to converse publicly. I think for many people the "publicly" part is a bigger barrier than the conversation part.

Thanks for pulling together all of these resources! I'll dig more deeply over the next few days.

Well, if your audience was not one that has participated in say - public forums, this is certainly true. Also, remember the lurker to poster ratio that is well established in online communities as the 5%.

As this research indicates, it more or less holds true for web 2.0
